We visited this restaurant fairly late on a rainy night on our way back to Stratford after a visit to some areas to the south. Although I cannot disavow any of the other, less favourable reviews, our experience was positive. We were admitted to a completely empty restaurant at 8:30, seated graciously, and offered attentive service. Although prices for most... More

The menu looks really excellent, the food was good but not great. Prices are high in comparison with other restaurants in Stow and the quality is not as good as some.

In all the years I have frequent The Old Butchers the food is excellent every time. Superb seasonal dishes. Great value and great service. Prosecco is the best served chilled to perfection. You would pay alot more elsewhere for such great quality meals.

We had been in for coffee on the morning of our visit to Stowe, which we had enjoyed very much, having had warm friendly service. We had seen the menu and decided to return for lunch. I went into the restaurant at 14.03 and was again greeted by the friendly waitress, but whilst making my way to a table I... More

This restaurant has become a regular for us and the food is always very good. It offers something different to the gastro pub experience of which there is a plethora in the area. Don't get me wrong, I love a good gastro pub but sometimes you just want a change and this is it. Excellent range of charcuterie and tapas... More

The first thing we noticed on entering the restaurant was the witty lighting. Colanders and champagne buckets had been turned into lights and they were very effective in setting the mood. The food was really good. I had calves liver on the first night and wild mushroom risotto on the second. My husband had the steak. The restaurant uses locally... More

Had a lovely dinner here, staff were friendly. House wine was vey good and well priced but the rest of the wines were overpriced. Only comment on the food was the mashed potatoes,though well presented seemed floury and tasted instant mash. Apart from that flavours were great and would go back there again

Dined here with family on a Friday evening. Very busy but good service. Excellent food and wine. A bit pricey but loved the cheese menu.

Now and again, when Jill and I need to get out of town, we drive down the Fosse to eat at The Old Butchers. It never disappoints. The menu is well judged, the house wine excellent and excellent value, and the proprietors friendly and professional. It is an exemplary small restaurant and I commend it to you.
